. less than half that thereby, 22%, said president obama won. 32% called it a tie. and look at this-- before the debate, only 30% of uncommitted voters said governor romney cares about their needs and problems. after the debate, that number more than doubled to 63%. on that same question, mr. obama's number went up as well, from 53% to 69. that was small consolation, though for a president whose debate performance has shaken up his campaign. we have reports tonight from our campaign 2012 team, and first, we'll go to nancy cordes, who is covering the president tonight. nancy. >> reporter: scott, even democrats are describing the president's performance as lack luster, and listless, and the campaign acknowledges it is going to have to reexamine its debate strategy. out on the campaign trail today, the president was in cleanup mode, trying to turn the tables on a triumphant mitt romney. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for t

(cheers and applause) more americans entered the work force, more people are getting jobs. >> reporter: around steady rain in cleveland where president obama shared a coat with the supporter who introduced him, he made it clear to a crowd of 9,000 that h

obama administration initially portrayed the terrorist attack as a spontaneous outbreak. >> why in the heck did it take so long for all these highly briefed and intelligent people to try and figure out that it actually wasn't a 15-minute youtube video. it actually was a 9/11 event, a terrorist attack. >> reporter: state department undersecretary patrick kennedy said there was no pressure to spin the events, scott, not at the state department and not at the white house. >> pelley: thank you, sharyl. president obama's counterterrorism advisor john brennan was in tripoli today. he asked libya's president to help find those who murdered the four americans. elizabeth palmer is in benghazi piecing together for us what happened that night. >> reporter: tomorrow marks one month since two americans died in the smoke and fire of the attack on the u.s. consulate's main building. but about two dozen others escaped that night under armed escort to another house nearby rented by the u.s. government. the americans evacuated from the consulate about a mile away, would have come along this road and up

obama 49% to 47%. that spread is within the margin of error, so it's essentially a tie. in ohio, new polling today shows this: pollster a.r.g. has romney up by one point, 48% to 47%. but a cnn poll has the president up by four, 51% to 47%. either way, it's an improvement for romney who was falling well behind in ohio until last week's debate. both candidates were in ohio today where this is the last day to register to vote. our campaign 2012 correspondents reason there, too, and we'll go to nancy cordes with the obama campaign. >> reporter: scott, ohio is the grand prize for the obama campaign. they have 120 field offices here, the president has held 17 rallies in this state, more than any other state, but in the debate last week he failed to mention some major issues that are very important to ohio voters, like that auto bailout or shipping jobs overseas. that's a mistake he did not make today here in columbus. >> when you think about ohio, when governor romney said that we should let the auto industry go bankrupt we said no, we're not going to take your advice.

( cheers and applause ) >> reporter: what some are calling election month began in ohio promptly at 8:00 a.m. ♪ some voters had over-nighted in the parking lot outside a columbus polling place. >> i think there's been a lot of controversy about early voting. >> reporter: emerald hernandez was there bright and early. >> for me it's a convenience, i can come in and get it done. >> reporter: you spent the night, though, to be one of the very first. >> i did. i was pretty excited. i thought why not? it's something different. i can say once in my life i camped out to vote. >> reporter: the names of the early voters are reported by the county board of elections. not their votes, just their names. the campaigns try to g

last month romney trailed president obama by eight points, 51% to 43%. but a pew poll taken after the presidential debate last week shows him ahead now by four points, 49% to 45%. that's outside the margin of error. we have two reports tonight. first we're going to go to jan crawford with governor romney who focused on foreign policy today at an address at the virginia military institute. jan? >> reporter: scott, the overarching theme is that the president has no foreign policy strategy that he's remained passive and reactive. romney said he know it is president hopes for a safer and freer middle east but that hope is not a strategy. >> when we look at the middle east today with iran closer than ever to nuclear weapons capability, with the conflict in syria threatening to destabilize the region and violent extremist on the march and with an others dead likely at the hands of al qaeda affiliates it's clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. >> reporter: in israel, romney said the relationship between president barack obama and pri
